Claimed as “One of the Most Beautiful Villages of France” in 1990, also in our opinion this is still current today, the medieval village of Limeuil is one of the jewels of the Périgord. There is certainly plenty to see and do in order to fill out your day here. If you prefer smaller more manageable villages and towns, then this is definitely one place that we suggest you should consider visiting.

As of winter 2018, I am pleased to say that we have now visited most of the main gardens in Dordogne. Therefore due to popular request by our guests, we have created a page with some suggestions for gardens for you to visit. There is no best, each suggestion is based on their different characteristics and features etc. Read our review of The Panoramic Gardens of Limeuil.

Les Jardins Panoramiques de Limeuil

The ‘Jardins Panoramiques de Limeuil’ is a large themed hilltop garden, situated above the confluence of the rivers Dore (Dordogne) and Vézère. As the name suggests, with spectacular panoramic views, the visit offers much more than just seeing a lovely garden!
